River Launch (Jubilee pt5)


I spent my Bank Holiday on a friends boat,
I learnt that my I-phone doesn’t ever float,
And oh! Did people laugh and grin,
When I slipped with a splash and fell in!

A stand-in for the queen was saluted,
As boats sailed past some even hooted,
Standing on the bank I shouted ‘Hooray!’
And fell in for a second time that day!

Thankfully the photos will never be seen,
Of me falling in the river in front of the ‘Queen’,
Mrs Bard says I’m really just a pain,
She says There’s no way I’ll boat with her again!
